Oh, It's a SKETCH. Oops.

I was bouncing around on Splitcoast and landed on this week's sketch challenge SC216. When I looked at the sketch my brain registered gatefold card and that's what I made, rather than just doing what I was supposed to do and follow the sketch. Duh. Guess we all have our dense moments and I was just in overdrive. hee hee! Oh well, it's done. Guess I could stick it closed and call it a sketch. Nah. Just need to put brain in gear before fingers go in motion next time. : ) The pale green CS is from SU!; sorry don't know the color. The DP is Anna Griffin. Frame and rose are cut with Spellbinders dies, My Mind's Eye DP for the frame. Popped the rose oval up on foam tape, and added Liquid Pearls all around it on the frame. Cut some tiny flowers with an MS punch and added those to the side after putting Stickles on a couple and in the centers. Attached matching CS to inside where sentiment is to be written. Stamped the flourish in the center, after stamping off once to make it lighter.

Stamps: Crafty Secrets Flourishes.
Paper: SU! CS, Anna Griffin and My Mind's Eye DP.
Ink: Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Spellbinders, Liquid Pearls, Stickles, MS Hydrangea punch.
